Joe Mohr, CFO of Surgical Capital Solutions – OE Tampa
Are you a dreamer, risk-taker, or doer?
Clearly I’m a doer. I don’t think anyone wants their finance person to be too much of a risk taker! However, in our business, it is the “doers” who make sure things work. The “doers” of our firm ensure that things are entered correctly, files get updated, make phone calls and build relationships….It is endless, really. While I believe we have innovations and analytics that rival anyone in our industry, our “doers” set us apart.
As fellow entrepreneurs, we would love to hear about your business.
Our business is about providing cash flow for medical providers, and in turn, helping people injured in motor vehicle accidents get the care that they might not otherwise be able to get. We mostly purchase non-health insurance receivables from medical providers and manage them until the motor vehicle accident cases settle. We also manage those claims for some providers who do not have the staff to do it.
We have loved being at Office Evolution. When we came here, the pandemic had just began and we were in the position of needing to rationalize expenses. Being here allowed us to focus 100% on running our business. Someone else makes sure that the doors work, the alarms work, the office gets cleaned and that we have coffee to drink. Frankly, we drink a great deal of coffee, and not worrying about those little things has been really important to us.
Who is your ideal customer?
Our ideal customer is a solid healthcare provider who is looking to improve their cash flow and utilize our expertise to select which injury cases to accept.
What are your top tips for entrepreneurial success?
Question everything. As a group we consistently question everything, and we aren’t afraid to be wrong. Our CEO has mentioned that sometimes learning means “paying tuition” in some markets that may not have worked— but in the end we came out smarter and stronger. Because we question everything, we made needed adjustments quickly and pivoted to a better strategy.
